Albany takes second game 4-2
The Albany Devils scored three of their goals on the power play as they defeated the St. John's IceCaps 4-2 Saturday night to tie their best-of-five first-round American Hockey League playoff series 1-1.
The Eastern Conference quarter-final now moves to St. John's for Games 3, 4 and 5, the latter if necessary, next Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
At Albany, N.Y., Reid Boucher, Stefan Matteau, Mattias Tedenby and Scott Timmins had the goals for the Devils, who had nine power-play chances.
Rookie defenceman Brenden Kichton had both goals for the IceCaps, a game-opening marker in the first period and a power-play tally in the second that tied the score at 2-2. However, Tedenby scored on power play less than three minutes after Kichton's second goal to put the Devils in front for good.
St. John's had five power play opportunities.
Both goaltenders, Michael Hutchinson of the IceCaps and Scott Kinkaid of the Devils, made 30 saves.
St. John's had won the opening game of the series 2-1 on Friday.
